Having spent the previous hour driving very cautiously through whiteout conditions the weather lifted very slightly so pulled over and got the camera out. Couldnt stay out too long as the car temp dial said -3 and in the full force of the wind I was NOT a happy photographer. That said, I am pleased with the outcome of the shots.

So - this was a 5 shot HDR blended in photomatix with a Hitech 100mm chocolate grad to warm the sky up a bit. Did a bit of work in lightroom to boost contrast and also to get rid of some of the colour on the tops of the hills that the grad affected. This was about the only 15min slot in the whole 24 hours when it wasnt snowing!
